From the organic teas and fresh fruit that await clients when they walk through the front door to the soothing services performed inside treatment rooms, Cetina European Skin Spa creates a peaceful respite where clients can let go of their stresses. Operated by a mother-daughter team of aestheticians—Maria and Suzanne Cetina—the spa draws on both cutting-edge techniques and products in its indulgent therapies. The Cetinas emphasize the importance of natural skincare methods by stocking their shelves with Shir-Organic products made from whole fruits and rejuvenating herbs.
These organic products drive to the soothing effects of the spa's various facial treatments and body therapies, such as shea butter hand treatments that nourish skin or mineral-rich sea-mud wraps that provide marshland camouflage. For a more mechanical approach, the staff uses crystal and diamond microdermabrasion equipment to restore cheekbones' natural radiance while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, and other blemishes. The massage therapists help complete spa escapes by soothing muscles with relaxing and therapeutic modalities.
Founder Ande Akinrele opened i Medspa after spending more than 20 years working in the international health and beauty industry in Belgium, England, and West Africa. Her close-knit staff—which includes physicians, physician assistants, nurses, medical aesthetician, and resident puppet—specializes in FDA-approved laser services such as IPL photofacials, acne treatments, medical weight loss, botox and filler treatments, and laser hair removal. More traditional spa services include facials, diamond-tip microdermabrasion, and chemical peels combining glycolic and salicylic acids. To help clients maintain their results at home, i Medspa sells pharmaceutical or medical-grade skincare lines such as Epionce, Obagi, and Glo-minerals makeup.
Oasis Thai Massage & Spa incorporates characteristics of popular massage techniques with traditional Thai methods to deliver whole-body relaxation. The body scrub kicks off the rejuvenating session by exfoliating dead skin cells, then relaxes bodies with hot essential oils that double as a source of aromatherapy. As the oils seep in and hydrate skin canvases, the procedure seamlessly switches gears to the combination massage. The massage therapist's appendages execute routines sourced from traditional Thai, Swedish, and deep-tissue massage. The hybrid mishmash of techniques also incorporates aspects of acupressure, passive yoga therapy, and reflexology to help clients restore their energy and attain the ability to scratch any part of their back with their mind.
